Besides this, the cost of this treatment in India is very high. This decreases the survival rate of the patients suffering from Diabetes.
But not to worry, we have an alternative system of medicines, called Ayurveda.
What is diabetes according to Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is 5000 years old system of natural healing that has its origin in Vedic culture of India.
There are three primary forces that are responsible for characteristic of mind and body. These are Vata (wind), Pitta(Fire) and Kapha(Earth). A balance is needed in these elements for sound health.
When it is balanced, an individual is lively, creative but when it is not balanced, a person experiences anxiety, insomniac, dry skin, constipation and difficulty in focusing.
When it is balanced, a person is warm, friendly, disciplined. But on the other hand, when it not balanced, a person tends to be compulsive, irritable and may suffer from indigestion or an inflammatory condition.
When it is balanced, a person is sweet, supportive, and stable. But when it is not balanced, a person may experience lethargy, gains weight, and gets sinus congestion.
Now according to, diabetes is a result of agni or Digestive fire. This activates high blood sugar levels.
According to Ayurveda if Vata (Air), Pitta(fire) and Kapha (Earth and water) are in balance, then body is said to be in healthiest state. Diabetes is caused by imbalance of Pitta in body. Vata, Pitta and Kapha are three elements which are Doshas in Ayurveda.
Diabetes is a metabolic Kapha type of disorder. It considers diabetes as a metabolic kapha type of disorder, in which decline in activity of agni can cause increase in blood sugar. Diabetic treatment in Ayurveda is done by using diet modification, lifestyle changes, Panchakarma and herbs.
A proper meal plan along with regular activity is good for treatment of Diabetes. Physical Activity is important. Regular activity along with proper meal, taking prescribed medications and stress management, all go in a long way in Ayurvedic treatment of diabetes. Consistent exercise can lower blood glucose.
In Ayurveda diabetes is called MadhuMeha, which correlates to type 2 Diabetes which occurs later in life and whose contributing factors include excessive deep over indulgence in food and sweets plus lack of physical activity.
According to Ayurveda type 2 diabetes occurs primarily due to imbalance or excess of Kapha Dosha. Type 1 diabetes is due to an imbalance of Vata Dosha.
There is a three step solution that helps to balance the Kapha and Vata Dosha
